DaySpring Villa is Oklahoma's first faith-based certified shelter for domestic violence victims and the first shelter of its kind in the state for adult survivors of human sexual trafficking. Our mission is to provide physical, emotional, Christ-like care to enable women and their children to live God-honoring lives. DaySpring Villa was started in 1980 as The Baptist Women's Shelter in downtown Tulsa. Over time, the need to help women suffering from domestic abuse became so great that in 1995, DaySpring Villa moved to a new, larger location near downtown Tulsa. In 1995, DaySpring Villa received certification as a domestic violence shelter from the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and, since that time, DaySpring Villa has provided sanctuary and services to more than 7,000 domestic violence survivors in the Tulsa metro area.
